The Sharpsburg-area man who was the subject of a massive search by police Thursday afternoon and who turned himself in to Maryland State Police on Friday, was released Friday after posting bond, according to Central Booking.
Terry Allen Porter, 46, of 4433 Mills Road, was charged with seven counts of possession of a firearm after conviction of a drug felony and seven charges of possession of a shotgun or rifle after conviction on a disqualifying offense, Assistant State’s Attorney Leon Debes has said.
Porter was held Friday in lieu of $75,000 bond, which was posted before he could be admitted to the Washington County Detention Center, according to jail and Central Booking officials.
Porter, who was reached by phone Sunday afternoon, declined to talk about the case. Porter said he didn’t want to say anything until he gets an attorney.
FBI agents, state police, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies, two special response units and others descended on an area south of Sharpsburg for a massive manhunt Thursday. A section of Mills Road was closed for hours during the search.
